Bailieborough News. August 21st 2014. Matthew J. Cullen.

 

Presentation

Sr. Geraldine Carolan from Crossmakeelan, who is on a rare home holiday from South Africa received what she described as a very generous donation towards her missionary work with the Sisters of the Assumption out there. The presentation cheque came from the Dancing for Pleasure committee, who hold a monthly dance in the Community Centre.

She explained how valuable the gift would be on account of the euro being worth about one third more than the local currency out there, the rand.

It was a rare coincidence that the presentation coincided with the Feast of the Assumption.

East Cavan Gaels GAA – Club News 18th August 2014

Hurling/Camogie Camp 2014; This week!

Following on from last year’s hugely successful camp, the biggest in the county, ECG in conjunction Cavan Hurling Development will have another camp this year. It is from this Tue/Wed/Thur 19/20/21 August. We hope to see all our regular hurlers there. It costs just €15 for the 3 days. Registration is from 9.30am each day. Contact Eoin Morrissey, Cavan Hurling Development 087 289 6735 or Willie Gaughran ECG HC 086 164 9280.

Development draw; To continue the work of developing hurling in the region we have our annual draw for 2 Premium Level tickets to the All-Ireland Hurling Final. Lines are just €2 and we look forward to the local communities continuing support for hurling. Lines/cards are available from all players, managers, coaches and mentors. Good Luck!

U12/14/16; Another very positive days hurling, this time from our U14 squad who partook in the St.Feilims Hurling Club blitz today reaching the Cup final. With teams from Longford, Westmeath, Cavan and Limerick this would turn out to be a great days hurling.

The boys started with a hard fought win over Annalee Gaels followed by a good victory over Longford’s Wolfe Tones in the semi-final particularlyafter digging deep to force extra time and points from Jack Barry and Eoin Morrissey securing a one point win in extra time.

On to the Cup final v St. Patricks from Limerick where the Treaty men proved a step too far for our lads but they can hold their heads high as one of the main standard bearers at this age grouping in the county. Fine performances all-round the squad but particularly good from Callum Gorham, Cillian Traynor and Jack Barry but ALL the boys can be very satisfied with their performances on the day especially as we were carrying a couple of injuries and a smaller than normal squad.

Very special thanks to St.Feilims Hurling Club for hosting this inter-county club blitz. These games are very valuable for club development and their forward thinking is to be commended.

A great days hurling.

Our first ever Under 16 squad will make their debut in the league near the end of August.

A special type of travel service takes off in Co. Cavan

The concept of having your own personal travel agent who gives you the best possible personal service around the clock may be relatively new, but it’s clearly proving a great success with customers in Co. Cavan which now has a new travel Counsellor in the area.

Bailieborough based Glenda Heery has just launched her own travel business as part of one of the world’s fastest growing travel agencies Travel Counsellors, offering a truly unique and bespoke service at a time to suit her customers, including evenings and weekends.

Travel Counsellors is a travel agency – with a twist. All of its advisors are equipped with leading edge technology which allows them to work flexibly. As part of the fastest growing independent travel agency in Ireland, and a world leading company with over 1,300 agents worldwide, Glenda can use this technology to search through literally hundreds of suppliers in a matter of minutes to find the best options for their customers.

Glenda, who most recently worked in an agency in Navan, comments; “After 11 years in the travel industry, I am delighted to have joined Travel Counsellors. The company will be supporting me in all areas of my business so I can focus on what I love and do best – finding the perfect holidays for my customers. Plus as we are independent and have the very best in-house booking technology it means I am free to choose the right products at the best prices that suit my customers’ individual needs.”

This unique way of selling travel has proved to be an unquestionable success as Glenda joins a large team of nearly 60 Travel Counsellors in the Republic of Ireland supported by their head office in Cork. The company is licensed and bonded by the Commission for Aviation Regulation in Ireland.

Glenda adds; “I am also extremely excited about running my own business as part of such an innovative and customer focused Travel Company. As I run my business from home I am more than happy to speak to my customers at a time that suits them, even if it is outside normal working hours. I love the fact that I can work so flexibly and know my customers will appreciate the personal service and attention to detail that I can offer.”
